Observation - January 5th, 2020, Sunday

The sky is bright, light
Blueish-gray, matted by clouds
Thin as wisps of frost

There are a few leaves
Dried things that cling to the trees
Flutter in the breeze

Outside my window
Dark limbs stretched across the pane
The old glass cascades

It bends the soft light
Waving in its fluid state
Windows on the world

Observation - January 3rd, 2018, Wednesday


The radiators here do not clang and bang

They are filled with hot water, not steam

I hear the flow in a low pitched rush

As the boilers work to beat the cold

Air seeping through the window sills

Kitty is curled up in her blue blanket

Head in paws, on her stuffed gray chair

The quiet is broken intermittently

By the sound of the neighbors toilet

Jennifer is tossing in her sleep, coughing

She has been struck by a January virus
